About this Cook
I've been married for 12 years and have 2 children. I love to cook/bake/make candy, especially for others. It's such a great feeling to see people enjoying your creations.
My favorite things to cook
Anything homemade really. Growing up my family was very big on making things from scratch. We are Polish, so making all of the ethnic foods are a must...even my kids love doing it. I love to make creative cakes and sweet treats. For all the Holidays, I try to make something neat for the kids.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My sister and I get together one night in mid December and have a cookie baking marathon throughout the night and weeee hours of the morning. We also make different flavored truffles, chocolate covered pretzels, and different candies for the Holidays. We try to make the traditional things you expect at Christmas, but also try to add something new. Everything is such a hit with everyone that our "traditional" list gets bigger every year!
My cooking triumphs
When I first got married, even though around cooking all my life and knowing how to, I was very intimidated having to do it everyday for my husband. It's a rarity for me not to be cooking. I would also have to say our truffles...they are enjoyed by everyone that eats them and I've been asked to make them for special occassions for others. I love it!
My cooking tragedies
Can't say I've really had any. Maybe burning something on the grill and having a grease fire.

Best Spanish Rice
I must admit, I was a little skeptical that the rice would be acidic with cooking in the salsa, but not one bit! This reminds me of the rice of a local authentic Mexican restaurant. Very good! My husband couldn't get enough and he is not a rice person.

Quick and Easy Alfredo Sauce
I must say that I did make a few changes to this when it came to the measurements and used freshly minced garlic instead of powder. My 13 yr old daughter attempted this one time and it just did not work. A little skeptical to try this again, I did because I had all of the ingredients, but so glad I did... This sauce turned out perfect! I found that if you cubed the cream cheese and cut the butter into pads, adding all ingredients in the sauce pot and have this on just above low, once they were about 1/2 way melted started whisking until smooth... everything came together wonderfully! Thank you for sharing!
